Mia Maestro understands full well the power of bringing together music with the theatrical. Born in Buenos Aires, she grew up and found a love for some of the world’s most renowned songwriters like Patti Smith and Leonard Cohen. She began cultivating her own dynamic and evocative voice at a young age, taking singing lessons around the age of thirteen. Influenced by everything from rock to opera, her voice shines, soaring above even the most turbulent orchestrations. Like the best classical pieces, her voice evokes emotion, finding the heart-wrenching notes in the subtlest of inflections. Influenced by singer-songwriters, her voice takes you on a journey, transporting you through poetry to places that once existed only in your imagination.
The magnetism of Mia Maestro’s voice and the eloquence of her lyrical conceits are brought in full focus on her magnificent debut album and EP, both titled Blue Eyed Sailor. The Blue Eyed Sailor songs were produced by Valgeir Sigurðsson (Björk, CocoRosie, Feist) and recorded at his Greenhouse Studios in Iceland.
